Dr. Zsófia Clemens


I am a neurobiologist and clinical researcher specialized in nutrition, nutritional therapy and brain research. Previously I have been affiliated with the National Institute of Clinical Neuroscience, Budapest and the Neurological Department, University of Pécs, Hungary and have been involved in research related to epilepsy and sleep, elecroencephalograpy, vitamin D and brain MRI. Currently I am the leader of the Paleomedicina Hungary research group. Since 2013 we have been using the paleolithic ketogenic diet exclusively in our clinical practice. The method we developed appears to have superior effectiveness to standard medical therapies used thus far. In most cases our patients are not just "treated" but cured if strictly adhering to the principles of our method. Besides patient management we are involved in publishing our results. Not all patients are motivated enough to follow a strict diet which seems to be at odds with both the official and "alternative" medicine recommendations. However, those who follow our dietary and medical guidence, are to expect a major improvement in their condition, a complete cure in most cases. We distance ourselves from naturopathic methods. Our work has a wholly scientific basis. Our work conforms major criteria of science: replicability, cognizability and biological plausibility.




In international academic journals, I have published 40 research articles with more than 1100 citations.

We are managing patients with chronic internal diseases using a dietary intervention method. These diseases include all types of diabetes, autoimmune diseases, such as Crohn’s disease and rheumatoid arthritis. But it also includes atherosclerosis.

We are working with specialists who are highly experienced in epilepsy and cancer as well. We provide complex rehabilitation from diagnostics to complete recovery.

In case you wish to consult us, we will ask for your medical documentation in advance. You may send it electronically or by surface mail. Only having read your documentation we are able to fix an appointment with you.

Dear Patient,

Thank you for your interest in our clinic and the services offered by our staff. In order to provide you with fast and efficient services our automated patient assistant will walk you through the consenting and registration process.

Please note that due to the recent increase in the demand we have a limited ability to reply to questions beyond the process provided by the automated patient assistant.
